This is the Portrait Blouse, from Gertie's Book for Better Sewing.
I found out that on my jacket, my vertical proportions aren't too far off of Gertie's, and this is a loose-fitting blouse, so I did a simple pattern grade. I wasn't necessarily going to trace off the pattern... until I saw the pattern sheet.
Her publisher chose to put lots of pattern bits overlapping one another, a la extremely vintage patterns and patterns from magazines. Much cheaper - and they used good paper - but it makes tracing off a requirement, not an option.
So I am starting with a size 10 (in Gertie land) on the shoulders/neck, grading to a 14 on the back and 16 front. That *should* prevent me from having to do a FBA, which seems a bit odd, on such a loose item. I made my notes on my pattern pieces, and when I'm ready to start working with them, I'll tissuefit and make quick muslin before I do much of anything else. I am hard to fit, so since I don't have a sloper for this kind of thing, I'll need to take my time and make the adjustments. As far as the jacket worked, Gertie-land is pretty kind to my figure, so not only do I like her patterns, I hope that fitting won't give me the usual fits.
Tonight I was too tired to tackle my lining for the suit jacket and too fidgety to sit at my computer any longer, so that's why I traced this out. :) I can't wait to sew it up... I'm going to use the eyelet that I brought home a couple of weeks ago for my first go-through.
